    Carbide Build PKG file to SISX - Phone says: "Can't Install"

    Hi All,

    I have made a very simple app and the emulator runs it without question. Now I am trying to make a sis file from that. I use carbide and select the *.pkg file and choose "Build PKG File". I have set the build configuration to Phone Release (GCCE).

    Carbide makes me a *.sis and *.sisx file. When I try to install the *.sis file it says that the license is wrong. Should be correct because it is unsigned. Sisx is signed (says carbide). When I try to install that one it says NOTHING about a license but says "can not install" (maybe not literal because I translated it from dutch "Kan niet installeren"). When I sign the file manually with SignSis from BINPDA I got the same error. So it should not be the signing process. Is it due the path to winsce in "C:\Symbian\9.2\S60_3rd_FP1\Epoc32\release\winscw\udeb\First.exe" ? Because I set this path manually because I could not find the *.exe file anywhere else on my hard drive.

    Thanks in advance!

    Before I could make a sis file I set the path to the *.exe file in the *.pkg file manually.
    My pkg file looks like this.
    Code:
    ; First.pkg
    ; This is an auto-generated PKG file by Carbide.
    ; This file uses variables specific to Carbide builds that will not work
    ; on command-line builds. If you want to use this generated PKG file from the
    ; command-line tools you will need to modify the variables with the appropriate
    ; values: $(EPOCROOT), $(PLATFORM), $(TARGET)
    ; Also, the resource file entries should be changed to match the language
    ; used in the build. For example, if building for LANGUAGE_01, change the file
    ; extensions .rsc to .r01.
    ;
    ;Language - standard language definitions
    &EN
    
    ; standard SIS file header
    #{"First"},(0xEE4CC46F),1,0,0
    
    ;Localised Vendor name
    %{"Vendor-EN"}
    
    ;Unique Vendor name
    :"Vendor"
    
    ;Supports Series 60 v 3.0
    [0x101F7961], 0, 0, 0, {"Series60ProductID"}
    
    ;Files to install
    ;You should change the source paths to match that of your environment
    ;<source> <destination>
    "C:\Symbian\9.2\S60_3rd_FP1\Epoc32\release\winscw\udeb\First.exe"		-"!:\sys\bin\First.exe"
    "C:\Symbian\9.2\S60_3rd_FP1\Epoc32\data\z\resource\apps\First.r01"		-"!:\resource\apps\First.r01"

    Re: Carbide Build PKG file to SISX - Phone says: "Can't Install"

    Sorry for this topic! The solution was to set the paths in the PKG file pointing to the *.exe to the epoc32/release/GCCE map instead of the winsce map!!

    Thanks anyway!

    In Carbide you can use the macros $(EPOCROOT), $(PLATFORM), and $(TARGET) so you can avoid this type of mistake. See the Carbide docs for specifics or create a template project and there will be examples created.

    When you decide to hack..there is always a price to pay for the risk-factor. Like Kumar suggested Nokia service centre may try to help you if your warranty is not void.

    In future for end-users queries, please refer to the end-users discussion board http://www.nokia.com/discussions/
    Good Luck!!
